It’s Your Right to Vote

Watch the video to learn about the importance of voting for people with disabilities from Joe Damiano of our Person Centered Services Member Advisory Board and Alan Venesky, Director of Community and Provider Relations.

 

 
 

As we get closer to the 2023 election of our representatives in local, state and federal governments, Person Centered Services reminds everyone 18 years of age and older of their right and privilege to vote.

Anyone with an intellectual and developmental disability who expresses a desire to vote should be supported to register to vote, identifying a plan for how and when they will vote, and making arrangements as needed for Election Day.

 

Important Dates:

October 28: Deadline to Register to Vote

October 28 – November 5: Early Voting

November 7: Election Day
